Al-Rawda Mosque.

The Union of Sinai Tribes has released a statement condemning Friday’s deadly attack on a mosque in North Sinai while reaffirming they will take ‘revenge’ in the fight against terrorism.

They called on those who wish to combat terrorism to join the tribal fighters in the village of al-Borth, North Sinai, the statement read.

“For all who want revenge and punishment of this black terror and take revenge on ISIS and those who committed the crime of today and yesterday, we, again, welcome everyone to join the tribal fighters in the village of al-Borth to stand against the fascist terrorism,” the statement added.

Also, the Union of Sinai Tribes has announced plans for a ‘major operation’ in coordination with the Egyptian army to combat terrorist attacks.

The declaration comes in response to what the Union described as a ‘massacre’ at Al-Rawda mosque, located in the Bir al-Abd village, to the west of North Sinai’s al-Arish.

The attack, marking the weekly Friday prayers, killed 305 people and injured another 128 in what is considered the most deadly terrorist attack in Egypt’s modern history.
